    Yes....believe it or not. Go back through his recent posts and you will see that he got screwed over by his school in China and pulled the plug there after only a very brief stay.

    Hey momo, not on the mainland anymore- most Chinese are cool, I just hit a bit of bad luck after 11 years of lucking out for the most part.
    I think micro-apartments in Hong Kong kill it for me, a shame as it is one of the best cities in the world

    Its half the strength of russian vodka and made from horse milk.

    ^That was served for breakfast! The vodka we had is the same proof as Russian, what you are thinking of is the traditional Arkhi milk vodka, it's not in season at the moment so will have to wait for the ol taste test- like the bottom of a birdcage I'm told

    Today was the first day of school, I boy am I going to be busy but looking forward to the challenge! My school is for profit, and while a lot of the money clearly goes back into the school in terms of material and grounds it means pretty much anyone is admitted. The varied ability is going to be the challenge- I have second graders who cannot spell there name but one girl who in the strongest American accent claimed: "Yeah my English is good but my Mongolian sucks!" There was a Maybach in the school drop off area- there is some serious wealth here. Now, back to the laminating

    Having lived at below minus 20 in Finland and Hungary the key is quality LAYERS cotton that wont sweat , thermals etc , the cheap Chinese fleeces etc are last resort, I'm sure the well heeled Mongols will know where to source the McCoy.

    If worst comes to worse a Yurt sweatlodge in the hottub with a hot Mongolian lady should take your mind off PYP

    Sex in Mongolia: Is It Dangerous For Foreigners?

    https://lifearoundasia.com/sex-in-mo...us-foriegners/

    Things won’t be like Thailand or the Philippines, but it shouldn’t be too difficult to convince a girl in Mongolia to go on a date with a Western man. However, things can get complicated for one reason – Mongolian men despise seeing Western men with local girls.

    Not only do they not like it, but these descendants of Genghis Khan are known to be quite aggressive.

    The women here are stunning, but we were warned to be careful in induction oddly enough. Met a few locals who enjoy hanging with beers. Most of my coworkers appear to be missionaries who transitioned into teaching, suffice to say the nightlife isn't something that appeals to them. My plan to enjoy these two years, take advantage of working in a country most folks will never visit and use my banked salary to buy a modest condo in BKK. Thailand will always be "home", it's time to start thinking of moving back in a couple of years.

    Nope, he is spot on- you really should not show off your local girl in front of local men. When booze is involved, violent crime is a problem in Mongolia. Avoid large groups of drunken men and don't go out after 10pm if you can help it. I live in a gated community with shops of restaurants and it's more about safety than prestige. There are dive bars, best avoided though. Most expats drink and the Shangri-La where bar brawls are unlikely and freelancers are welcome.

    Yeah, well, a place where the main hobbies for men are wrestling and archery, one would think that primitive masculinity and alpha male behaviour would be rife and thus one might be a bit circumspect sniffing around their women.

    Might start a book club for teachers here, given that many of them are missionaries it's only fair we start with Achebe's "Things Fall Apart". That should stop the church invitations

    Just let it generally be known that you are Buddhist.


    After the 1990 overthrow of communism, there has been a resurgence of Buddhism in the country, with about 200 temples now in existence and a monastic sangha of around 300 to 500 Mongolian monks and nuns.[13] According to Vesna Wallace, a professor of religious studies at UC Santa Barbara: "Now more people are coming to temples and visiting monasteries. There is also a new interest in meditation among the general public."[14]
    According to the national census of 2010, 53% of the Mongolians identify as Buddhists.


    Monastic life was nearly wiped out in the Soviet ear, mostly during Stalinist purges in the 1930s when an estimated 17,000 lamas were executed, but since the country emerged from decades of Soviet dominance, the Yellow Hat sect of Tibetan Buddhism has made a comeback. In 2006, Reuters reported: “When Gendenjav Choijamts thinks of praying, he thinks of vodka. The 62-year-old monk at Mongolia's oldest Buddhist monastery remembers when his father and his friends had to pretend they were gathering for a drinking session to hide the fact they were gathering in prayer. "My father was a monk but because people were persecuted for that, it wasn't widely known," he said in the lush green grounds of Erdene Zuu, which dates from the 16th century. "He was a herder. He hid his shrine and would chant in secret in the evening," he said. [Source: Reuters, July 19, 2006 *~*]

    “In 1990, three monasteries were allowed to reopen. The number quickly mushroomed to 170 across the country. Erdene Zuu monastery, in the grasslands on the edge of the ancient capital of Kharkhorin, some 370km southwest of Ulaanbaatar, housed 1,500 lamas before it was destroyed in 1936. But on the vast plains and valleys... traditions survived. "We used to hide the shrine in a big chest. When it was dark we would light the butter lamps," said Baasan-Suren Khandsuren. At 27, he is head lama at the monastery, whose grounds are marked out from the surrounding grasslands by a border of 108 stupas, which managed to survive the purges. When he came to the monastery in 1991, shortly after it reopened, there were just 17 monks. Now there are 65. At the time, Baasan-Suren was 12 years old. *~*

    “When Baasan-Suren entered the monastery he was following the footsteps of his grandfather, who managed to salvage religious artefacts from the grounds after it was closed."In Mongolia, there are very old monks and very young monks," he said, alluding to the generation raised during the communist era, when gatherings of prayer were replaced by meetings of the state co-operative. "When I visited my grandfather's home, I looked at the Buddhist statues and had a very warm feeling about those items," he said, interrupting an interview to fish into his robes to answer his mobile phone. "It took a lot of courage to keep all those things during communist times." *~*
    “At 12, Baasan-Suren had to forsake standard education for religious teachings. Now, he has established a religious school to allow the 33 boys currently taught there the privilege of both. As he speaks from his office, housed in a ger, the traditional round tent of herders, little boys run wild around the grounds, playing and pushing and hiking up their maroon robes to show off on a chin-up bar as they wait for the morning chanting to begin. *~*

    “Among the tourists milling around the grounds are visitors from Ulaanbaatar, some are also devoted Buddhists. "I always have my prayer beads with me," said 50-year-old Tserendulam Tserennad-mid, her sunhat and sweatsuit marking her out as a city-dweller in the country where nearly half the 2.7 million population are nomadic herders. Next to the monastery's main shrine, a monk staffs a small table where adherents come to order chantings. As the sun burns off the night chill, a boy blows a conch shell and the monks begin their morning prayers. Gendenjav Choijamts is glad to be among them. "This is a good change," he said of the renewed traditions. "When you don't have religion, you lose your compassion." *~*
    Andrea Sachs wrote in the Washington Post: “Dressed in a saffron robe and a beaded prayer bracelet, he spoke eloquently about the urgent need to protect nature and the environment, lessons outlined in the Mongolian Buddhist Eight-Year Conservation Plan. When I asked whether he approved of the scene outside his window, he replied, “It looks good, but I see big changes.” He then performed a short pantomime of an American action movie, including car chase.” [Source: Andrea Sachs, Washington Post, May 13, 2011]

    Pretty sensible and good plan.

    You were talking about remittance etc a few weeks ago, I think. For this plan you'll need to get yer savings into yer home country. If you can set up a 2 year closed saving's account from overseas it might be a good option for it.

    I think if you spent some time in Thailand outside Bangkok you'd rethink your location, though.

    Little point in being there if you don't work there.

    I certainly would.


    Though from what I gather about Mandy is that he'd probably be working at an International school, and then flying off to different places every long-weekend/school break.

    Not a bad base for that.

    Any gold shops around, is it legal to take gold out of the country? Do the ladies treat/wear gold, similar to Thailand?

    Any pressure from the school on how to ensure the Kids "progress"?
